Extent and Result of Searches to Locate Information
To locate the information relevant to your request searches were conducted within the North Yorkshire Police Finance Department, which also serves the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.
I wish to advise you the Police and Crime Commissioner has made no trips outside of the United Kingdom since the Office was created, and therefore there is no information held in respect of questions two, three and four of your request.
